The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition for Xbox 360 to be released on 17/04/2012
“The Xbox 360 version is a complete adaptation of the game to the new platform, we’ve rewritten the code so it feels native to the console. This latest version of The Witcher 2 has been expanded in many ways, and some experts believe it to be one of the best-looking games ever to make it to consoles,” said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED Studio.
Gameplay has been extended through the addition of new quests and locations. The Witcher 2’s intriguing plot is now even more complex thanks to the introduction of major new NPCs who intensify the struggle for power in the Northern Kingdoms.
Other enhancements include the game’s user interface, which has been revamped to provide for better control on the Xbox 360, while new targeting, camera and control systems will give players full control of the witcher during the game’s dynamic and tactically rich combat sequences.
“PC users who already own the game will be happy to learn that they will be able to download all the added content free of charge. At the same time, the Xbox 360 version will incorporate all DLCs and upgrades made available thus far for the game’s original platform (including the ‘Arena’ arcade mode and Tutorial that were part of the latest and richest PC version),” added Badowski.

Also, he wouldn't be whining if he didn't sell his friggin IP instead of taking a cut. (10 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: He wrote the first witcher stories in the 80s mang, and the main witcher saga in the 90's. Before the games nobody knew, now The Witcher is a huge global thing. I think it was a win for him. (13 minutes ago)
For those who want action and great fights, I really recommend "Int the Badlands" on AMC. The fights' coreography are amazing and the story is good enough to keep the action going. (47 minutes ago)
